A Boy I Once Knew: What a Teacher Learned from her Student

A Boy I Once Knew: What a Teacher Learned from her Student by Elizabeth StoneOne morning, a box was delivered to Elizabeth Stone's door. It held ten years of personal diaries and a letter that began "Dear Elizabeth, You must be wondering why I left you my diaries in my will. After all, we have not seen each other in over twenty years . . ."

What followed was a remarkable year in Elizabeth's life as she read Vincent's diaries and began to learn about the high school student she had taught twenty-five years before. A Boy I Once Knew is the story of the man that Vincent had become-and the efforts of his teacher to make some sense of his life.

With his diaries, Vincent becomes...

A profound thinker and writer, as well as a gifted orator, he easily walked two paths, as a respected Elder and traditional healer and as an educational psychologist, one of the first Aboriginal people in Canada to receive a PhD. His work challenged and transformed long-held views of Canada's Indigenous peoples, and his vision and leadership gave direction to many of the current fields of Aboriginal...

How music provided hope in one of the world's darkest times--the inspirational life story of Alice Herz-Sommer, the oldest living Holocaust survivor

An Unexpected Finish Line Leaves a Unique Legacy: One Persons Short Journey Impacts the Journey of Many

An Unexpected Finish Line Leaves a Unique Legacy: One Persons Short Journey Impacts the Journey of Many by Dr. David C. Johnson"Engineering, at it's core, seeks to leverage a deeper understanding of God's physical creation for some useful purpose". Penned by Dr. Kenneth Johnson, those words reflect the unwavering commitment of a Renaissance man whose life was committed to serving Christ and bringing hope to those in need. Dr. Kenneth Johnson left significantly more than a tragedy behind him when he left this world in November 2013 at the age of 43. In the words of Dr. John C. Bowling, President of Olivet Nazarene University (O.N.U.)," Ken was deeply faithdriven and a tremendous professor who inspired greatness from...

Antonio Caso, Philosopher of Mexico: Philosopher of Mexico

Antonio Caso, Philosopher of Mexico: Philosopher of Mexico by John H. HaddoxFew men have had as much cultural and educational influence on their own countries as the philosopher and educator Antonio Caso (1883-1946). He was above all a patriot of his beloved Mexico, and he sought to deliver his humanitarian message to his countrymen. In his youth, after the revolt against Díaz, he was a member of the Ateneo de la Juventud, a group that sought to bring Mexico, spiritually and economically, back to the Mexicans. Caso realized that this effort involved the forming of a national consciousness among his people, whom he saw divided by their private and public interests....

Blackboards, Backboards, Politics and More: Grandpa's Last Story, A Memoir

Blackboards, Backboards, Politics and More: Grandpa's Last Story, A Memoir by Joseph J. HenryThis is the last of three memoirs written by the author. It started as purely a story about entering the teaching profession at forty-five (1989), with the trauma and challenges attached to that, but slowly evolved into a comprehensive accounting of the author's life. Educational politics (school board), Master's studies (Goodwill Games), athletic accomplishments with emphasis on running, early childhood development, raising a family, the intricacies of running for public office (State House) and a healthy dose of family ancestry are all mixed into the teacher context of the story.

Charlotte Mason: Hidden Heritage and Educational Influence

Charlotte Mason: Hidden Heritage and Educational Influence by Margaret A. CoombsAs the acknowledged founder and philosopher of the Parents' National Educational Union (PNEU), Charlotte Mason (1842-1923) was revered by her followers as a saintly Madonna figure. She died in 1923 at the peak of her fame, having achieved mythic status as the Principal of her House of Education and wide recognition after the introduction of her liberal educational programmes into state schools. Yet her early life and heritage remained shrouded in mystery. Drawing upon insubstantiated sources, the official biography released in 1960 confused rather than illuminated Charlotte's background, contributing...

Crazy Like a Fox: One Principal's Triumph in the Inner City by Ben Chavis & Carey BlakelyThe inspiring true story of "one of the country's finest educators" (National Review) and the school he changed forever.

Under the leadership of highly unorthodox principal Dr. Ben Chavis, Oakland's American Indian Public Charter School was hailed as an "education miracle" by governor Arnold Schwarzenegger after it was transformed from a failing "nuisance" into one of the best public middle schools in the nation.

This is the story of that transformation and of a man who dared to be different. With his rigorous, no-nonsense approach, Dr. Chavis debunks the myth that poor, minority, inner-city...

Culture Broker: Franklin D. Murphy and the Transformation of Los Angeles

Culture Broker: Franklin D. Murphy and the Transformation of Los Angeles by Margaret Leslie DavisFranklin Murphy? It's not a name that is widely known; even during his lifetime the public knew little of him. But for nearly thirty years, Murphy was the dominant figure in the cultural development of Los Angeles. Behind the scenes, Murphy used his role as confidant, family friend, and advisor to the founders and scions of some of America's greatest fortunes-Ahmanson, Rockefeller, Ford, Mellon, and Annenberg-to direct the largesse of the wealthy into cultural institutions of his choosing. In this first full biography of Franklin D. Murphy (1916-994), Margaret Leslie Davis delivers the compelling...

Dangerous Minds: They Were Problem Kids With One Last Chance . . . Her

Dangerous Minds: They Were Problem Kids With One Last Chance . . . Her by Louanne Johnson

She bullied, bluffed, and bribed her students into caring about school.


And if that didn't work, the pretty, petite ex-marine told them she'd been trained to kill with her bare hands.


They were called the class from Hell-thirty-four inner city sophomores she inherited from a teacher who'd been "pushed over the edge." She was told "those kids have tasted blood. They're dangerous."


But LouAnne Johnson had a different idea. Where the school system saw thirty-four unreachable kids, she saw young men and women with intelligence and dreams. When others gave up on them, she broke the rules to give them...
